The 25th Annual Children's Christmas Party at The Bicycle Hotel & Casino

The Bicycle Hotel & Casino's annual Children's Christmas Party took place again this December to celebrate the holidays with all the local children and families in the neighborhood.  Over 2500 children and adults were welcomed with fun activities for all ages.

The festivities included a petting zoo, arts and crafts stations, horse riding, caricature artists, balloon artists, rock climbing and photos with Santa Clause himself.

This marks the 25th year the Bicycle Hotel & Casino has sponsored such an event and the participation of volunteers and attendees grows each year with much success and joy for all those involved.

Congratulations to Mario Lopez, Winner of the $250,000 Guaranteed Event!

Mario Lopez and Robert Natividad decided to try to work out a deal, and after some initial struggles, the two agreed to a deal! Natividad will take home an extra $10,000, pushing his take home total to $50,690. The winner of the event, Mario Lopez, will earn $59,125, and the title! Congratulations to both players on their fantastic runs!

We want to thank everyone who came out to this series, and all of our major series in 2019. We hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday season, and if we don't see you for our upcoming daily tournaments, we hope you will join us in March, when the WSOP Circuit returns once again!

Robert Natividad - 2nd place 

Don Zewin Eliminated in 3rd Place ($25,470)

Just two hands later, Don Zewin got his short stack of eight big blinds or so in preflop, and he was in good shape, holding [Kh][8d] to the [10h][8c] of Mario Lopez. However, the flop of [10c][7d][5h] flipped the script, and now Zewin was looking for a three outer.

It wouldn't come, as the board finished out [5d] and [3s].

This leaves us heads up, with Lopez holding a massive lead of around 21 million to the nine million of Robert Natividad.

Vontray Gardner Eliminated in 4th Place ($19,290)

Blinds: 75,000-150,000

Mario Lopez raised to 500,000 under the gun, and Vontray Gardner defended his big blind. The flop came down [10h][8d][3c], and Gardner open shoved all in for his final 3.5 million or so. Lopez quickly called with [10s][7s] for top pair, and he was ahead of the [Kh][8d] of Gardner.

The turn [5d] and river [3s] changed nothing, and Lopez celebrated as he dragged another monster pot. With that hand, Lopez has over 20 million of the 30 million chips in play three handed.

Monday, December 16, 2019

Richard Lim Eliminated in 5th Place ($15,490)

After a raise from Vontray Gardner on the button, Richard Lim moved all in from the big blind. Gardner quickly called with [Kc][Kd], and he was well ahead of the [Ac][7h] of Lim. The flop of [7s][4s][3d] gave Lim a pair, but the kings were still in front. The [2d] on the turn gave Lim a few more outs, but none of them came on the river, the [8c].

Gardner is back up to 6.5 million after that pot, and there are now four players left. As of yet, there haven't been any talks of a chop.

Fresh Counts From the Final Five

The floor staff has just colored up the blue 5,000 chips as we start the 75,000-150,000 level, so we thought we would grab some updated chip counts for you guys. Mario Lopez has extended his lead, due in large part to a huge hand that he just won off of Vontray Gardner. Lopez shoved the river in a pot that had at least 3.5 million in it, and Gardner tanked for quite some time before folding. Lopez showed just second pair on the board as he raked in the huge pot.

Mario Lopez - 11,700,000
Robert Natividad - 9,000,000
Vontray Gardner - 5,100,000
Richard LIm - 1,900,000
Don Zewin - 1,400,000

Makram Merhom Crippled, Eliminated in 6th Place ($12,570)

Blinds: 60,000-120,000

Makram Merhom raised to 400,000 from early position, and Vontray Gardner called next to act. From the small blind, Richard Lim moved all in, and Merhom didn't take long to shove himself, having Lim barely covered.

Gardner immediately folded Ace-Queen face up, and it was the right play, as Lim showed [Kd][Ks]. He was dominating the [10h][10c] of Merhom, and the flop came down [As][2d][5d]. Gardner immediately pounded the table at the site of the ace, but his frustration was short lived, as a king on the turn left Merhom drawing dead.

Merhom was left with half a big blind, and he would get his chips in on the next hand. He would bust to Vontray Gardner, leaving us with just five players now.

Natividad Threatening for the Lead Now

On the turn of a board reading [8s][4h][3c][3d], Richard Lim fired 1.25 million, leaving himself about a million behind. His long opponent, Robert Natividad, thought it over for about 90 seconds before shoving all in, having Lin covered.

Lim tanked well into the break, before asking Natividad if he folded and showed if Natividad would also show. Natividad nodded, and Lim open mucked pocket sixes. Natividad flashed pocket jacks as he scooped the pot, upping his chip stack to about 8.5 million. At the moment, he is neck and neck with Mario Lopez for the chip lead six handed.

Lim Doubles Through Merhom

Blinds 50,000-100,000

Following a raise from Richard Lim, Makram Merhom three bet to a million from the big blind. Lim shoved all in for 1.6 million total, and Merhom quickly called.

Merhom: [10h][10d]
Lim: [As][Kh]

Lim shot out to the lead on the flop of [Ks][7s][5d], and the turn and river changed nothing. Lim doubled up to 3.4 million, while Merhom is down to 1.6 million.

David Fernandez Eliminated in 7th Place ($9,990)

Blinds: 50,000-100,000

"Oh man..." were the words from Vontray Gardner that got our attention. We went over to see that Gardner was facing a big decision, as David Fernandez had shoved all in for just over two million on a board of [Kc][Kh][3c][9d]. It was more than a pot sized shove, and represented almost half of Gardner's stack, so it was a big decision for him. After about 90 seconds, he said "I can't fold this," and called.

Fernandez: [6s][3h]
Gardner: [Kd][10h]

Fernandez was left drawing dead to the trip kings of Gardner, and that massive pot vaults him into the chip lead with 8.2 million.

Merhom Doubles Through Gardner

Makram Merhom and Vontray Gardner got into a raising war preflop that saw all of Merhom's 1.73 million get into the middle. He held [Kc][Ks], and had Vontray Gardner's [Ad][Kh] in rough shape. The flop of [Jh][6h][3s] brought Gardner some backdoor outs, and the [10s] turn meant that a queen would work for him now as well.

However, the river was the [7c], and Merhom scored the double up to 3.7 million, while Gardner dropped to 4.3 million.

Updated Counts From the Final Seven

Mario Lopez has maintained his chip lead seven handed, but Vontray Gardner is slowly catching up to him. Check out how the final seven stack up, as the 50,000-100,000 level has just started.

Mario Lopez - 7,000,000
Vontray Gardner - 6,000,000
Don Zewin - 4,100,000
Robert Nativiada - 3,900,000
Richard Lim - 3,230,000
David Fernandez - 2,500,000
Makram Merhom - 1,600,000

Fernandez Doubles Through Natividad

Blinds: 40,000-80,000

Richard Lim raised to 160,000 from early position, and Robert Natividad called from the button. In the small blind, David Fernandez three bet shoved all in for exactly 1 million more. Lim tank folded what he later claimed was pocket fours, and Natividad thought for about 30 seconds before calling.

Natividad: [Kd][Js]
Fernandez: [7c][7s]

The flop of [Ah][9s][6d] brought no help for Natividad, who asked the dealer for paint on the turn. She oblidged, but it was the [Qc], missing Natividad, but giving him a ten for outs as well today. The river was the [4c], drawing a reaction from Lim who would have rivered a set had he called.

As it is, Fernandez doubled up to 2.4 million, while Natividad took a hit, but is still fine with 3.85 million.

David Leese Eliminated in 8th Place ( $7,715)

Blinds: 40,000-80,000

David Leese started the day third in chips, but he was never able to get much going today, as his chip stack slowly withered away. Eventually, he would three bet shove following a raise from chip leader Mario Lopez, and he would make the call to put Leese at risk.

Lopez: [Ad][Jh]
Leese: [Kh][Qd]

The board came down all low cards, [6c][4c][4d][5c][6h], and the ace high held for Lopez to increase his slight chip lead over Vontray Gardner and Don Zewin.

Paul Liu Eliminated in 9th Place ($5,645)

Blinds: 40,000-80,000

Paul Liu and Vontray Gardner were heads up on the turn of a board showing [9h][6h][2d][7c]. Liu had moved all in for his final 710,000, and Gardner thought for about a minute before calling.

Liu: [8c][2h]
Gardner: 8d][8s]

Liu could only win with a deuce, or chop with a ten or five, but the [7s] came instead.

This is the latest in a recent charge made by Gardner, who is now up to 5 million after that pot.

We have just reached another pay jump, as Nathan Bjerno was just knocked out in 16th by the new chip leader, Robert Natividad. Bjerno got his final 615,000 in the middle on the turn, with the board showing [9c][5h][4d][3s]. Bjerno held five-four for two pair, and was ahead of the [As][9s] of Nativdad.

Congratulations to Andrew Wisdom, Winner of the High Roller Ring Event...Again

Andrew Wisdom started the heads up battle with Yash Jadhwani with a nice chip lead, but Jadhwani was able to claw his way back to nearly even at one point. However, Wisdom was once again able to knock his opponent down to the starting deficit, before he eventually got the best of him.

On the final hand, Jadhwani got his money in good preflop, holding [8c][8h] to the [Kd][4s] of Wisdom. However, a king popped right in the window, and he got a third king on the river for good measure.

Jadhwani earns $46,600, but the big story is Wisdom't victory here. Amazingly, this is the third year in a row that Wisdom got heads up in the December High Roller Event. He is now two for three, and for his efforts today, he takes home $75,390, and his second WSOP Circuit ring.

Congratulations to Andrew on his incredible performance, and thank you to everyone who played in the High Roller Event!

Yash Jadhwani - 2nd place 

Joo Park Eliminated in 3rd Place ($31,665)

Joo Park got his short stack in preflop holding [Qc][Jd], and he was flipping against the [9d][9c] of Yash Jadhwani.

The board ran down [Kh][7d][4h][3d][4d], and the nines held to get us to heads up play.

Amazingly, this is the third straight December High Roller that Andrew Wisdom has gotten heads up in. He won it the first time in 2017, taking home $72,420, and last December, he lost heads up to Aaron Messmer, pocketing $35,600.

Wisdom has a big advantage at the moment, with 2.5 million to the 800,000 of Jadhwani.
